About

For the “Mozart Forever 2006” celebration, here is Claudio Abbado’s first-ever Zauberflöte, featuring an extraordinary young cast and the Mahler Chamber Orchestra. Recorded in Modena in conjunction with a series of performances in Italy and Germany, it was acclaimed by the press.

“Abbado’s performance is, quite simply, mesmerising. It is so full of musical onsight and operatic experience that every bar seems perfectly placed, every detail ... perfectly illuminated.” – The Guardian

Reviews

René Pape’s magnificent Sarastro dominates the opera, just as intended. He and the superb chorus bring just the right touch of gravitas, so all the pantomime fin with Papageno and Papagena is nicely balanced. ... Although the moments of drama are not lost, this is above all an affectionately relaxed performance, with Abbado continually revelling in the lyrical beauty of Mozart’s wonderful score.
